The structure is at the offshore location and operator PEMEX is preparing to start commercial operations.
According to Mark Coscio, McDermott’s senior vice president for North, Central and South America: “The project demonstrates our ability to deliver a vertically integrated, turnkey EPCI solution to build and commission platforms and associated structures utilizing our project management, engineering, and fabrication teams in Mexico.”
This was the company’s largest single platform project. It is designed to provide replacement and expansion capabilities to the offshore Ku-Maloob-Zaap, Cantarell and Ayatsil field facilities.
McDermott performed fabrication at its complex in Altamira, Mexico, and used its vessels Derrick Barge 50 and Intermac 650 to transport and install the platform.
